Alumni: All former students of Goldsmiths


All former students automatically join the Goldsmiths alumni community and can register to use the Library's facilities. 


  • Recent graduates (alumni who left Goldsmiths within the last three years) may register for alumni membership. Membership is free, lasts for three years from your finishing date, and permits the borrowing of four books at a time.
  • Following initial three year Alumni membership, members may obtain another three year's membership. Alumni renewing their membership have two options: (1) they may renew their membership with borrowing rights (for £30); or (2) they may renew their membership with reference access only (free-of-charge).
  • Alumni who left Goldsmiths over three years ago may pay £30 for alumni membership, which will last for three years and permits the borrowing of four books at a time.
  • Alumni members may access the Library 24/7.
  • Alumni members may access the guest wi-fi.
  • Alumni members are unable to access computers or online resources owing to licensing restrictions.
  • If you are in debt to Goldsmiths, you will need to clear this debt before registering with the Library.
